The Allen Community Page

For the last two months, over 1 million Texans in more than 500 communities throughout our great state competed in the 2013 Healthy at H-E-B Community Challenge. The competition was fierce, but in the end, this year's Challenge further united members of the Texas community in support of a healthier state, and we should be proud of this important achievement! We are honored to work hand-in-hand with you to make healthy the new normal in Texas and beyond.

We thank you for your commitment to a healthier Texas, and we hope you'll stay in touch with us on Facebook, and Twitter.

Thanks for making this year's Challenge a huge success!

Congratulations to this year's winners!
